    I actually figure it out by running the R script alone. It seems that it is needed to transform the csv file strings to factor.


    By adding changing the line 16 from:

    data <- read.csv(args[1])


    data <- read.csv(args[1], stringsAsFactors = TRUE)

    The R script worked. Any chance to change the script so this error stop to occur in the future?
